  • First of all, I love dinosaurs, so I loved this place. I wish I would have watched the Dinosaur 13 documentary before visiting. There is some history here, in that the institute has found some of the most complete T-Rex skeletons ever found. And they have on display the T-Rex, Stan, an amazing sight. I was also pleasantly surprised by their collection of rocks and minerals.
  • A small treasure filled with huge dinosaur fossils and cast replicas and huge array of stones around the world. The gift shop is amazing full of gemstones and reasonably priced gifts and items. Bathroom is very clean and had big gemstone looking bar of soap which was cool. Staff was super friendly.
  • Awesome Museum, feels small, but then you realize just how many items are in this collection. Extremely reasonable admission prices, great gift shop, helpful staff, great all-around experience.
  • Pete Larson took the time to really talk to my geeky science kid who dreams of paleontology and everything dinosaur. This place is the result of people doing what they were born to do.
  • Loved the T Rex exhibits staff very helpful
